Description ycollet 2014-07-02 11:01:48 UTC
Don't embed the mscore fonts in the mscore package.
These fonts are not installed when you compile mscore-1.3 from sources. They are embedded in the executable.
These fonts are also a problem when you test mscore from git repo. This version of the mscore fonts are not compatible with the fonts from the git repo.

See bug http://musescore.org/en/node/27041 to see the problem with the fonts.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 12:16:44 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 3 ycollet 2015-05-29 12:58:08 UTC
This bug is still valid for fedora 22. MuseScore fonts are embedded in the application and also shipped as a separate file.
When testing a development version which use another version of this font file, this can brings problems hard to track down.

Comment 4 Joachim Backes 2015-10-29 09:12:59 UTC
 Same issue in F23. Especially if running git versions beside  F23 mscore.

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 11:53:17 UTC
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
